A '''feast day''' (or festival) is the date a [[saint]], a holy event, or a holy object is commemorated in the liturgical life of the [[Orthodox Church]]. A feast day is primarily celebrated through the hymnography of the Church's divine services appointed to be celebrated on such day.
The feast day of a saint is generally the date of his or her death.
